Rated 4 out of 5┬áby lrmarie Adorable!!! But not practical :)
I have been dying to see this top in person and they finally got it at my local store. The front is totally sheer - if you actually want to wear this out and about, you will have to wear a cami underneath - but don't let that stop you because the pattern is just so cute!!
I really appreciate that the fabric does not feel utterly flimsy despite being very thin - however it is still a very thin material and will have to be treated carefully.
The back tie detail is cute and the grey was a very t-shirty colored grey. The fit is over sized - I am usually a small/medium and the small was still a bit swingy on me. I like loose fitting shirts, so I was happy with the small - but for those of you who like close fitting shirts, go down a size or two.
This is a top that reminds me of why I love Anthro's clothing - whimsical, different, and fun. Sadly, a busy toddler and active lifestyle means this shirt is not very practical for me. So I will wait it out to see if it goes on sale!!!
For reference - 5'6'', 135 lbs, 36C (if you have a smaller chest, SIZE DOWN!!!), usually a small or medium.

Rated 2 out of 5┬áby lcw86 I love the print, but not the rest.
When I first saw this top I got so excited! I absolutely love anything with birds on it, and I thought the print and design of this top was beautiful. I was planning on layering this with different tops and sweaters/cardis.
Unfortunately, I was disappointed when I tried this on.
First of all, it's HUGE. Very wide and very long. I sized down and ordered an XS, but it looked like a giant tent on me. And for the record, I love over-sized tops- but this was all wrong. Just a really strange fit. (For reference, I am normally a size Small in Anthro clothing. I'm 5'7" and 115 pounds, 34B)
The top is also very sheer (which I was expecting, but this was WAY more see-through than most of the sheer tops I own!) You definitely need to wear a cami underneath. But because the top is so over-sized like I mentioned and has the lace-up cutout in the back (which goes down a lot further than I thought by the way), it was hard to find a cami to layer this with. I have over 20 camis of all different styles, and just couldn't find one that looked decent.
Anyway, to sum it up: The quality was okay for the price point and I was sad to return this, but I just couldn't make it work.

Not sure about this one, I adored it when I saw the picture online and couldn't wait to get it.
It IS a very cute top!
I found the fit to be TTS, I am large chested and went with a medium. I would not have gone any smaller, I may even return and try a large.
It does require something underneath, but it looks really cute with a cami underneath. I think it'd look great with a cardigan this fall, but then you lose the fun back detailing, maybe a long sleeve tissue tee.
I would recommend waiting for a sale on this one, and if possible try it on in store.
